Intelligent Internet of Things with Reliable Communication and Collaboration Technologies

The internet of things (IoT) connects objects to Internet through sensor devices, radio frequency identification devices and other information collection and processing devices to realize information interaction. IoT is widely used in many fields, including intelligent transportation, intelligent healthcare, intelligent home and industry. In these fields, IoT devices connected via high-speed Internet for efficient and reliable communications and faster response times. The application form of the intelligent IoT should be a multi-functional integrated IoT platform product, which has a high degree of intelligence and can carry out real-time monitoring of the IoT system. The intelligent IoT can continue to learn and evolve in an open environment, constantly meet the personalized needs of users and improve the service quality. However, this also imposes new security, privacy and energy consumption challenges, which highlights the need to develop novel collaborative methodologies to tackle these challenges.

This special issue will focus on technologies for secure communication and device collaboration in intelligent IoT systems to achieve the goal of reliable and green communication based on mobile edge computing in the IoT field. By adopting a reliable, collaboratively intelligent, and energy efficient computing offloading scheme, we invite researchers to publish their original research papers to improve communication efficiency and quality of service.


Topics include (but not limited to):

● AI-based approaches for reliable communications

● Collaborative intelligence for IoT

● Network architecture and protocols for reliable communications

● Resource management for reliable communications

● Energy-efficient computational offloading scheme for green Internet of Vehicles

● Internet of Vehicles with reliable communications

● Security and privacy issues for reliable communications

● Service Characterization for reliable communications

● Trust management mechanism in IoT

● Blockchain based security for IoT

● Intrusion detection technology for IoT

● Offloading method design for edge management

● Satellite, Space and Ocean-based IoT with Collaboration Technologies
